Reach,
There are a lot of predator hunters on this sub-forum, so you might get some answers you don't like and some pretty different opinions than yours.
You would really disagree with my profession, seeing as I never eat what I put down on a daly basis, or use the fur. Wish I could use it but the state thinks differently.
Dave, why didn't you jump out like the boogie man when that cat got close? That is good times

I thought about it. Would be funny to see how big its eyes would get and watch it try to back pedal out of its skin haha. But I didnt want to spook it too bad cuz it was right next to public land and I was hoping it would wander over that way and give me a shot. Main goal was to see how close I could bring it in for pics.

If you jumped up and yelled then maybe you would have scared it out of its skin then people wouldn't get offended or have a problem with killing it for it's fir.

Called a kitty in last night but it stayed pretty far out, never got off a shot. Also called in many, many kit fox. Really starting to not like them. For being endagered I sure seem to call them in at almost every stand!

FYI, for all the guys reading this and thinking they are going to get rich off of selling furs, You need a Trappers License to sell furs. Hunting license doesn't cut it.

"We don't have to anymore?" Really? Ummm, you do realize that we now have farms, businesses and corporations that solely deal in the business of mass animal death. They are called "slaughter houses." "Farmer John" is a big one, maybe you've heard of them before? Yes, we have evolved "dramatically," as you've correctly pointed out. Now, it's more streamlined in the animal massacre food procurement process now. I guess if you don't see or do the killing yourself, it's okay with you then to eat that steak or hot dog, right? Or how about wearing those leather work gloves or your wife's leather purse you bought her as a gift? Is that okay?

I'm sorry, but I'd agree with you if you were right. Did you know that the North American white tailed deer population is actually larger now than it was 100 years ago? There is a difference between "preservation" and liberal thinking of a dwindling species vs. "conservation" and species survival and growth.

Not only deer, but the waterfowl population has exploded in the past 60 years, thanks to carefully thought out managed and LEGAL hunting conservation. Through proper game management (ie legal HUNTING), the North American gator population has EXPLODED!!!!! For bobcats, why do you think in California a hunter can take 5 (FIVE) bobcats per year and not just one???? Why, because there are plenty of them. I will continue to take their fur, use it and leave the rest of the body to naturally turn itself into "jerky" to feed the coyotes, ravens, CONDORS and insects...... Which, by the way I'll hunt those fat lazy coyotes later, to boot and wind up killing some of those insects with bug spray!

Tell ya what. You come with me on my next hunt and after I skin a coyote, I'll let you collect the rest of the animal and you find a place that will take it as a donation and serve it up "BBQ style" or whatever.

You do realize that you're in a pro HUNTING forum, right? Please don't come on here trying to insult me with anti-hunting hate and intolerance.

Yeah, after I took the pics I went back to the truck and got Joey out on the leash. Put her on the scent and she went nuts! Told her "get the cat, get the cat" she knows what that means..... Sucks I couldnt let her run the cat though

Awesome pictures, Good job dirtydave!

Mzhunter, was that cat done by Breck Dickinson? When I had work done by him I could have swore I saw a mount exactly like that in his shop.

Just be careful who you take it to cats are pretty hard to do.On all cats the face is tough to get right. Some taxidermist can be great at a lot of animals and their cats look crappy. If your in doubt just tell him you are tight on cash and have him send it off for a lifesize tan and you can decide when it gets back.

Ditto on this. Make sure you see the guys previous work on cats. Unless you are going for that "Surprised" look that you see on so many cats haha.


PS: If I get a full mount done on a Bobcat, i want it to look like this. I want my own grumpy cat

Man I loved the work of Bob at "Bob's Taxidermy" in Fullerton. His faces on all the mounts he did were superb! That's why Hollywood used his mounts almost exclusively for 25+ years before he retired and closed up shop.
